The Jupiter team had another successful trip to Germany at the annual Berlin Fruit Logistica.
A real highlight in the fresh produce calendar, Berlin Fruit Logistica boasts huge visitor numbers with over 72,000 trade show visitors from 135 countries stopping by across the three days.
The Jupiter team had a fantastic time meeting with suppliers, old and new customers as well as friends from across the industry.
Global Women Fresh success
Michelle Redfern, the founder of ‘Advancing Women’, an enterprise providing research and advisory services on equality, inclusion and gender diversity introduced our Joint MD Yvonne to the stage at the 3rd annual Global Women Fresh event in Berlin.
To a packed crowd, Yvonne introduced Jupiter and pledged to continue our support of women in the fresh produce and agricultural sector.
Yvonne says “By supporting Global Women Fresh we are beyond pleased to be flying the flag for equality and gender parity within the industry. Ensuring that we have a fair and diverse work-force is at the forefront of our business decisions and we hope that this goes some way to empower the next generation of female leaders in agri-fresh.”
